Trump ended the ban on importing hunting trophies into the USA, so rich people can slaughter endangered elephants! Add your name if you want Congress to do whatever it takes to restore the ban!
Lifting the ban means that hunters can to travel to two African countries, Zimbabwe and Zambia, where they can pay to kill an endangered elephant, and then bring their trophy back home to the USA.
"Zimbabwe's elephant population has declined six percent since 2001, with increased incidents of poaching in areas where trophy hunting is permitted," reported Vice News.
They added: "In Zambia, the elephant population has dropped from 200,000 elephants in 1972 to little over 21,000 in 2016, according to the Great Elephant Census." In other words, almost 90% of Zambia's elephants have disappeared, since 1972.
If things keep going this way, the magnificent African elephant will soon become extinct. Forever.
Just so rich men like Donald Trump Jr. can have a trophy...
"Think this has anything to do with Trump's new policy to allow elephant and lion trophies back into the US?? #scum" — akmk, via Twitter
After massive social media outrage, Trump has said on Twitter that he's, "put big game trophy decision on hold." But then he moved forward anyway!
Don't you want to permanently stop Trump's plan to let scumbags like his son kill endangered elephants in Africa, and then bring their trophies home to the States?
Then add your name to demand that Congress do whatever it takes to keep protections for endangered animals, like African elephants, so no more of these precious creatures are lost!
